Inspired by Mark_H's fine lists, I've decided to create one with my ratings of albums released in 2010.
I rate every song on an album based on the following criteria.
10 - Masterpiece
9 - Excellent
8 - Very good
7 - Nice
6 - Average
5 - Could be better
4 - Don't like it
3 - Bad
2 - Horrible
1 - Can't listen to it
For rating an album, I calculate its weighted average considering each song's duration. I also consider previous works released by the artist that I know of, so I can adjust ratings from time to time.
Albums rated around 7 or above are recommended.
Albums rated around 6 are average and you could give it a try to see if you like it.
So, here is my list, which will be updated as I rate new albums or adjust some ratings. Feel free to leave your comments ;-)
01. (=) Anima Mundi - The Way - 7.98
02. (=) La Maschera di Cera - Petali di Fuoco - 7.79
03. (=) Marillion - Size Matters - 7.68
